We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the 2024
International Symposium on Technological Advances in Human-Robot
Interaction (TAHRI)! The submission site is now open:

Overview: TAHRI aims to be the premiere symposium for HRI research
focused on the advancement of the underlying technology enabling the
interaction between a robot and a human. The inaugural event will be
held on March 9-10, 2024 in Boulder, Colorado, USA, two days before
and co-located with the 2024 HRI conference!

Theme: The theme for the inaugural TAHRI is "Building Bridges
Between Builders", gathering HRI researchers and practitioners from
academia, industry, government, and other research groups who are
focused on the development of HRI technologies.

Topics: TAHRI seeks technological HRI contributions from a broad range
of perspectives, including, but not limited to, robots, platforms,
hardware, software, sensors, actuators, perception, control,
algorithms, models, mechanisms, methods, interfaces, architectures,
frameworks, benchmarks, datasets, tools, techniques, or other
technologies that, with reasonable effort, can be incorporated into
the design, development, or deployment of an HRI system.

Papers: TAHRI is an inclusive, community-focused venue that invites
novel, high-quality technological HRI papers that will be
peer-reviewed in a flexible process, presented live at the symposium,
and indexed in archived ACM proceedings.

    Standard review papers are for technological HRI work intended to
    go through a full peer-review process (including internal and
    external reviewers).

    Rapid review papers are for technological HRI work that has been
    previously reviewed, but was either not indexed or not published,
    that has been revised based on previous reviewer feedback, and for
    which a summary of reviews, rebuttals, and revisions can also be
    submitted. These papers are part of a new rolling review process
    (from Nov. 6th, 2023 to Jan. 19th, 2024), with a fast turnaround
    notification (~3 weeks) and a limited number of submissions! See
    the website for important details.

    Short papers are for recent, ongoing, or otherwise promising
    technological HRI work with preliminary results or details of
    accessible artifacts that are relevant to the HRI research
    community and show potential to promote discussions at
    TAHRI. These papers will not be indexed in archived proceedings.

Important Dates:

    Nov. 6, 2023: Paper submission site opens

    ~3 weeks after submission: Rapid review paper notification

    Dec. 1, 2023: Standard review paper deadline

    Jan. 19, 2024: Standard review paper notification / Rapid review paper deadline / Short paper deadline

    Feb. 2, 2024: Revise-and-resubmit deadline

    Feb. 9, 2024: Revise-and-resubmit notification / Short paper notification
